The Hint Fiction Film Contest is a worldwide film contest based off the collection of short stories published by the name of "Hint Fiction". Filmmakers receive a 25-word or less story from the book with dialogue or action and they make a 60-second film of how they interpret or visualize it. The top films from each of the stories will advance on to the finals. A celebrity panel will help judge it and the finalists will screen at the Vail Film Festival in Vail Colorado ( www.vailfilmfest.com ), a prestigious film festival most recently honoring attendee's Josh Lucas, Kate Bosworth, Michael Imperioli, Zach Braff, and Jane Seymour. The winner will then be awarded a cash prize and sponsor package.

Think outside of the box, other filmmakers will have the same story you do.  Although you have to use the dialogue and/or actions as described, your film doesn't have to be a literal recreation and you are open to interpret the story as you so choose. You may add dialogue and actions to the story but MUST fully use what is given to you as well. The sky is the limit.
